i'm programing an applet using jdk 1.3 and no swing, but awt classes.
in a panel i use the paint(Graphics g) method to paint some lines etc. to form "tabs" at the top of the applet.
when i first load the applet, these tabs are not being displayed. but when i drag some other window (e.g. other browser window) over the applet and away again the tabs are being painted suddenly.
this happens when using netscape 4.78 & java-plugin 1.3.1
can anyone tell me how i get the applet to paint these tabs straight away at the beginning?!
thanx for your help.
here's my applet : http://www.getinvolved.unizh.ch/glossar/dev/
